I use 100 grit garnet paper to rough my stocks before I painted them, When my computer went down I had little to do on my spare time so I painted 5 stocks. The paint I used was the Krylon Camo paint, also I used some Rust Oleum in certain colors, then after the camo paint cured in the 105 degree sun for a day, I used Rust-Oleums Matte Clear-coat and let that cure in the sun. The result is a "baked on" tough as nails paint job, and their cool.
The forums limit on file types wont permit me to show pics, I can't figure out why my pics are taking up so much file space!???
